Holiday Wreaths Honor Our Soldiers At National Cemetery In Bourne

24/7/365…The women and men of our Armed Forces defend our country, our freedom, and our way of life 24/7/365! Saturday, December 17th through a nationwide effort called Wreaths Across America, those women and men no longer living were honored at the National Cemetery in Bourne with an extraordinary ceremony and holiday wreaths placed on their graves. Hundreds of volunteers shrugged off the sleet/rain to pay tribute and help in placing over 8,000 wreaths. It was an incredible moving experience! Volunteers are needed for January 21 at 10 am to meet at the National Cemetery and collect the wreaths. Salute!

As a child, spending summers in North Truro, I thought Cape Cod began at the Wellfleet Drive-In and ended at Provincetown. As a photographer, I now know that all the Cape towns leading to the canal have their own unique beauty and charm.

Roughly 30 years ago, I had the good fortune to work with the legendary photographer Dick Kelsey and as owner of Kelsey-Kennard have specialized in aerial photography as well as landscape/scenic, portraits, weddings, and photographing events on the Cape, the Islands, and beyond.

Photographs from our Gallery in Chatham are displayed in homes and businesses locally and world-wide.

Besides photography I also enjoy boating/ fishing (fish are usually very safe when I’m out there,) gardening and tennis. Cape Cod is a very special place and I look forward to sharing my images with you as I travel about.
